This book was one I eagerly anticipated, but like a few others in the series I feel let down by it. In this case there was too much focus, attention, time and narration spent on the perpetrater of the crimes. Not only do I not read the In Death series for prolonged reads about murderers (which I felt this to be) but it sadly made many steps in the investigation repetitive and much less interesting, ... nothing close to attention binding. At the same time characters were slightly over drawn and acting unlike themselves. Many of the small kind gestures that one often wondered why Dallas seems incapable of making were suddenly flowing from her. Sort of nice to see but without any explanation a little odd. And only one example. But most of all I want to read these books because of their central characters, particularly Dallas, ... otherwise what's the point in following through the series? I do Not want to be treated to what amounts to entire chapters on the murderer's actions, thought processes, and plans. I will look forward to the next with as much enthusiasm as ever, hopefully this time it will be justified.
Love to read and listen to books
I love this series. I'm sad when the book end and can't wait for the next book . Love the narrator!!!!!!!!
Dallas is still kick ass on the job. Knowing who the murderer is from the start adds salt to the excitement of the story. It was an interesting twist in storytelling that absolutely worked! I didn't want the story to end and I can't wait for the next one in the series.
Yes, if my friend also enjoyed murder mystery with a hint of futuristic technology.
No, this book doesn't keep you on the edge of your seat wondering what next, but can they?
OH, the Irish voices! She brings half of the book alive!
Good enough name....
This started as a good entertaining book about murder and became more and more of a story about the people solve those murders....but remained a very good and entertaining book...just in a way I never expected. With thanks....
Just when I thought the series was getting stale JD Robb mixes it up. I loved the different approach. As always, Susan Ericksen is great.
I love the "In Death Series" and I've been waiting impatiently for this one. I loved hearing from Nixie and many of the other favorites. I just wish there had been more interaction with Eve and her friends and less of the killer in this story.
He was completely unlikeable and got way too much book time. I was glad Eve finally got him, but it took to long, especially since he wasn't very good.
I loved the award ceremony and the holiday dinner. I'm looking forward to the next book. I'll keep reading them as they come. This wasn't my favorite story, but it wasn't the worst, so I'm good.
I think Susan Ericksen is the best narrator. I just can't imagine any else voicing Eve and cast. As long as she's reading I'm listening. Keep them coming!
I am a retired Court Reporter and I LOVE books. All kinds of books but my favorites are mysteries and period books. I like civil war books and some biographies.
As always I was hooked from the first page. I love all of the main characters in the "in death" series. I can hardly wait for the next book.
Robb, yes. Read by Ericksen, not a chance.
The first screeching sound of the narrators voice. Another would be an hour later when I couldn't stand it any longer and headed for the bookstore.
Couldn't finish the audiobook, went out and bought the book and read it.
